Im new here, and was about to build a coaster in 3d studio max and stumbled across this forum where it would seem people are having a contest on making one.
I have purchased 3d studio max 7 and would like some tips on getting started if possible....
1. What tools shall I use to actually make the coaster cars. is there a tutorial for the technique you describe.
I've already drawn front, top and left and right views for it so have a plan to work from.
2. How shall I construct the track and once again, what tools and is there a tutorial?
The track is simply going to be a straight with a big climb at the start for the coaster to roll down from on the other side. there also needs to be a pulley mechanism depicted as taking the coaster up. Any ideas for that and a tutorial anywhere?
3. When it comes to animating it, I just want it to slowly go up the hill of the track and then roll down the other side. Any ideas on doing that?
Thankyou 1000000000000000000% in advance for any help at all.
